    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview

    The interview process was unusual. The interview was rescheduled due to a business issue the day before. I had to ask if it was in person or by phone and it was by phone. The conference call number they gave me never connected. After 5 minutes I received a call from the interviewers who called me directly after they couldn't connect on the conference call. The focus was on my previous experience and what they did. The interview lasted for an hour after which I didn't hear anything for three or four weeks. I was then called with an offer. I never did an in person interview which I thought would have been required before an offer was extended.

    Reasons for Declining

    They offered me a 1.8% salary increase but I would have lost 1% of 401(k) matching from my current employer and two weeks of vacation. When I asked about negotiating vacation or pay they immediately responded that they did not negotiate vacation and they were going with another candidate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA (Nashua, NH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process was straight forward, some technical questions, some behavioral questions. This is considered as an intern position so they just wanted to know if you are a hardworker and if you are willing to put in the hard work, they don't expect you to know everything from the beginning.
